Tasting notes

Magnificent golden yellow colour, with great legs. A powerful, aromatic bouquet typical of this great terroir. Notes of candied fruits, apricot and a hint of pineapple. The palate deftly balances punchy fresh fruit with a well-rounded sweetness. The distinctive aromas from the nose reappear on the palate, with a delicious splash of honey in the finale. Perfect with pan-fried foie gras, and fish or poultry dishes in creamy sauces. Food-wine pairings Perfect with pan-fried foie gras, and fish or poultry dishes in creamy sauces.
